What about sleep? How will we make sure to have enough rest at night with all our classmates around?

Wellness is the key to a great trip for the kids. All students are required to have at least 9 hours of sleep at night, with quiet time starting at 9:00 PM.

Students may not be in their rooms if they are not sleeping (or showering and silently preparing for bed). This is a non-negotiable (and usually the first time students see “grumpy Mr. T.” make an appearance to remind them of the clear expectations). Students who have enough sleep end up staying healthy at Microcampus. Those who do not, do not. Needless to say, Ms. Mai and Mr. T. (and the nurse during our pre-trip Overnighter) stress the importance of a good night’s sleep, every night—and openly advocate for students to have a quiet place to sleep each night.
